I can see this notice from my bedroom window and when I first saw it my reaction was ... "not another scheme". During my twenty five years living here not one of the promised programmes that related to my street has ever been implemented. However, it should be mentioned that because of the Luas, The Grangegorman University Campus and the influx of restaurants the area in general is beginning to improve despite a high level of anti-social activity.

As Dublin City Council does undertake some excellent projects I am willing to wait to see if this new proposal produces any results.

In case you are interested if have included some information below.

Community Safety Project explained

The Local Community Safety Partnership is a new government initiative which will bring together statutory services, the voluntary and community sector, local councillors and community members to work together to identify and tackle community safety issues locally. A new Local Community Safety Partnership will be piloted first in the North Inner City Local Electoral Area. This pilot is supported by the Department of Justice, the Department of the Taoiseach, Dublin City Council, and the NEIC initiative.

Community safety is a broad concept that goes beyond just policing and crime. It’s about people being and feeling safe in their communities, and it includes everything from visible Gardaí to safe places for children to play. Community safety needs a multi-agency approach, where services work together to deliver on the needs of individual communities. We also need the community, those who live and work there, to be a part of this. We think your organisation can play an important role. We need your help to identify priorities, devise and implement solutions either as part of the Local Community Safety Partnership or the wider community network.

How will this work?

The Local Community Safety Partnership will give the community a stronger voice in identifying and tackling the issues that individuals, families, young people, business owners and all members of the community face. Representatives of the community will make up 51% of the members of the Local Community Safety Partnership, meaning community voices will be the majority.

The Local Community Safety Partnership will work with the community to identify local priorities and use these to develop a local community safety plan that will be delivered in a collaborative fashion by all stakeholders.
